COLLIDE presents a contemporary version of Oscar Wilde’s classic novel premiering March 22- April 7 at Park Square Theatre. Set in modern day New York City, the story follows a beautiful young Dorian Gray who stumbles into an accidental photo opportunity and shoots to heights of social media fame. Disturbed that her physical beauty will deteriorate with age, Dorian wishes for eternal youth. Her wish is granted, and the photo rather than the woman degrades as she pursues a life of corruption and debauchery, reminding her that though her looks are unscathed, her soul is not. Can she still find salvation? Or is her soul trapped in the photograph? This production features an all-female cast and music by female singer/songwriters from the 1990s to today. Brittany Keefe (James Sewell Ballet, Pacific Northwest Ballet) plays the title role of Dorian Gray alongside lead dancers Heather Brockman (Ballet of the Dolls), and Chelsea Rose (Collide’s The Great Gatsby). Vocalists Katie Bradley (The Guthrie Theater) and Katie Gearty (Dakota Jazz Club) headline the band with music direction by Shannon van der Reck. The ensemble is rounded out by Rebecca Abroe, Grace Janiszewski, Grace Kidder, Betsy Nelson, Callie Rosenbaum, and Morgen Chang.
